O.P.P. Other People Post
this article talks about how his run split wast faster than xterra world champion, Conrad Stoltz.
move-in update: we are ALMOST unpacked. the Padres bobble heads have found a nice home in James' office at work! the garage is the next project. and we're still together. barely.
is one of my best friends of all time.we were derelict college roomates and logged crazy hours waking up at noon quite hungover, sitting on the couch eating Wendy's watching 90210 reruns, smoking cigarettes (yep. YUCK!!!!!!!! sorry. so gross.)...the list gets worse so i will stop here.
well, those days are long gone, and thankfully, we both have cleaned up our acts and martha is preparing for her first marathon! She's running the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco in October and i am incredibly pumped and proud of her (even if she IS wearing a running skirt!). all this combined with the fact that martha (who was an underground genius in college...) is a recent Duke business school graduate and quite successful over in her new home-Houston, TX...She has all three "S"s- Sexy, Smart, and Sane (well 2 out of 3 ain't bad. just kidding, marth).and did i mention she's single? let me know if you know anyone worthy over in TEJAS!
KELLY (and Dante)
I hadn't spoken to kelly in close to 15 years, since we spent our summers as sailing instructors at camp tockwogh. kelly and i both remember each other as lacrosse and field hockey girls, but had no clue we'd both end up in this crazy triathlon world...well, through the wild wonderful world of FACEBOOK, we reconnected this summer right before they CRUSHED it at Ironman Lake Placid. Kelly even swam under an hour (and i didn't stalk Dante's splits because i don't know his last name) and finished the race in the pouring rain!
the two of them still have two half ironmans on the books for the remainder of the year (i'm wishing i could join them for miamiman on 11/9). They just started a blog after IMLP and its awesome. Its a his/hers blog so i can't wait for them to throw each other under the bus. it looks like Dante is already planning some secret swim missions to gain some ground on his fishy lady.
here is their blog....read it- i'm into it already...
here's their profile...
"She is a slight OCD runner and neat freak who likes to nap and scooby a lot. She cannot spell so this blogging thing should be interesting. No judging please! He is the training and equipment resarch coordinator and is considered the coach of the group, he also moonlights as a FIST bike fitter. He is the speller of the relationship, so if anything is mispelled, its all Kelly"
my brother in law has taken on training for his very first triathlon from no background at all. Dan works crazy hours in the finance world and is getting ready to do the sprint at the Chicago Triathlon later this month! in true, "GIT IT, DAWG!" fashion, he was out there logging the run miles in 100 degree heat on our north carolina vacation (somehow he always left the house like 5 minutes after me, i think he was scared i would lay it to him if we ran together :) , right dan?). next time i won't let him off so easy. i was even with him for his first open water swim (and his first with goggles...okay dan, goggles are like, kind of necessary...)
Anyhow, i'm very proud of him and can't wait to hear about it- wish i could be there!
that's it for now! i'm working out my race schedule for the rest of the year (oh wait, this isn't supposed to be about me) and am thinking fall marathon?....hmmmm
